|Milky Way Galaxy|
Jonah's experience fits faith and reason when looked at through a lens of science about Planet Earth, on which both Jonah and the sea creature dwelt, one on land, one in water.
Jonah, like us, had an address: Planet Earth within Milky Way Galaxy (graphic here). Earth's galaxy has been described as a "barred spiral galaxy that measures about 100,000 light-years across, and is thought to contain between 100 and 400 billion stars."
A healthy sense of wonder helps when considering those few facts, since we don't feel Earth turning, orbiting the sun, and we don't get dizzy because of it, although Earth is turning at 1,040 miles per hour. For every second, Earth is moving almost half a kilometer through space, and who feels it?
After Jonah completed his job in Nineveh, I wonder about his reaction if he could have learned what humans have since learned about this planet, her earth and seas.
I can only imagine him saying, about his three days in a sea creature, something like this: "Man, three days inside a big fish are nothing compared to what I try to comprehend about Earth traveling within a galaxy, and only as a small part of it!"
I think Jonah might even have felt ready for a long nap.
